ASC’s are facilities for surgical patients who do not need to be admitted to the hospital. ASC patients typically arrive for admission, have surgery performed in a full service operating room with specialized staff, recover safely and quickly from anesthesia and return home within hours of their surgery. Some procedures require the patients to stay for several hours to allow nurses to monitor their recovery
Depending on the ASC, the center may specialize in one service line such as plastic surgery or eye care, while other centers may offer multispecialties such as ear, nose and throat procedures, gynecological procedures, general procedures, orthopedic procedures and podiatry procedures.
ASC’s are on the cutting edge of technology often utilizing the most current surgical innovations with the least invasive techniques allowing patients to return to their normal lifestyle sooner. ASC’s are efficient, understanding that everyone’s time is important. Their convenient surgical flow allows you less wait time and less bureaucracy and offers patientfriendly family-centered environments.
